Big Meech’s son, Demetrius “Lil Meech” Flenory, has been tapped to portray him in 50 Cent’s forthcoming crime drama, “Black Mafia Family.”
The series is inspired by the true story of one of the most influential crime families in the country.
“Black Mafia Family” will delve into the origins of the mafia in the late 1980s, and how the pursuit of the American dream eventually leads the operation to branch out from national drug distribution to hip-hop in the early 2000s.
According to Variety, 50 Cent and Tasha Smith, who is set to direct first episode, were instrumental in casting Lil Meech.
In other casting news, Da’Vinchi has been cast to play Big Meech’s brother, Terry “Southwest T” Flenory.
Wood Harris is joining the cast as Pat, the first mentor of Meech and Terry and reverend O.G. that instilled the “family-first” attitude that ultimately served as both the cornerstone for the Flenory brothers’ rise to power in the game and the crux of their climactic fallout.
I’m getting excited about this series. How about you?
